Fall Guys Season 2 release date, crossplay hints, and Gamescom reveals

The overnight sensation will get a second season of content.

As the lastest battle royale sensation, it seemed likely that Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout would adopt the seasonal DLC structure of blockbusters like Fortnite and Call of Duty: Warzone. On August 21, this second season of Fall Guys was confirmed by Geoff Keighley, who announced the game would appear at Gamescom Opening Night Live. True enough, we got a huge overview of the game's second season on August 27.

This is everything we know about Season 2 of Fall Guys so far.

Is there a trailer for Fall Guys Season 2?

Yes, a new trailer for Fall Guys Season 2 was released during Gamescom Opening Night Live. Gamescom Opening Night Live host and organizer Geoff Keighley teased on Twitter that "I saw a rough trailer yesterday that @FallGuysGame showed me and you will not be disappointed!" and he definitely wasn't wrong.

When is the Fall Guys Season 2 release date?

The description of the trailer for Fall Guys Season 2 confirmed that the new season of the game will start in October 2020. No specific date was given.

Standard post-launch seasons for battle royale games like Fall Guys tend to last a few months, but it appears Fall Guys might be on a different cadence, or that Season 2 is an exception to that standard because of the game's popularity. For now, we'll just have to wait to learn more about the exact date for Fall Guys Season 2's release.

What will Fall Guys Season 2 add to the game?

During Gamescom Opening Night Live, we got an idea of what to expect from the second season of Fall Guys, even if this "sneak preview," didn't show too much. "Fall Guys Season 2 will bring the dragon fire with feudal fortresses, knockout knights and pugilistic paladins among new additions coming this October," the official description of Season 2 reads.

"A full season of new costumes, emotes, and more will reward players as they lay siege to the Middle Ages. Overall, Season 2 has a medieval theme to it, with new stages and costumes following suit. While some games like Hoopsie Daisy and Egg Scramble just seem to have new variant stages, we did get a glimpse at some brand new ones.

While it still goes unnamed, this stage appears to be a game similar to Door Dash where players must climb on boxes in order to get over large walls. These boxes are fairly small and Fall Guys' grabbing ability allows players to move them, so these matches will surely be super chaotic. We also see concept art for what looks like a medieval platforming gauntlet that's as tough as Slime Climb.

As for specific costumes, we see looks based on Vikings, witches, dragons, wizards, and knights. Don't be surprised if we get even more costumes when Season 2 launches.

The developers have said during previous updates that they are listening to fan feedback extremely closely. Hopefully, that means Season 2 will address some features and issues that are often brought up by the community.

What have the developers said about future Fall Guys content?

The developers also seem to have their own vision for the future of Fall Guys. A big thing they seem to be stressing is the addition of cross-play. Senior Designer Joe Walsh explained to MinnMax that "a big thing we're definitely looking into is cross-play" in addition to having the ability to "win or lose as teams," and adding enough stages to "where you press go and there are 100 variations of that first level."

After Gamescom Opening Night Live, we have a better idea of what to expect from Season 2 of Fall Guys, even if we won't know everything that it will contain just yet.

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is available now for PC and PS4.
